202c: BSI charged for distributing John with BOSS

Setting Orange, 41st Bureaucracy, 3173.

[TecChannel][tecchannel] filed a charge against German [BSI][bsi]. BSI stands for “Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik” (Federal Office for Information Security) and they are the central IT security service provider for the German government. The reason for the charge is BSIs distribution of [BOSS][boss] (BSI OSS Security Suite), which is basically a Live CD containing Open Source security tools such as Nessus and John the Ripper.

It will be interesting to see what happens.
